UPDATE: RockNess 2013

This coming Summer, The Maccabees will be hitting the festival circuit in Europe and one of their first confirmations, in addition to their already confirmed appearance at this year’s Isle of Wight festival, was revealed earlier in the week. The festival appearances will come after a late Winter tour of North America this year, hitting the U.S., Canada and Mexico (see below).

Along with The Vaccines, Jessie Ware and Elle Goulding, the band will be playing RockNess, the Scottish festival set to take place June 7 through June 9 at Loch Ness in Scotland.

The festival first started in 2006 and has grown in size every year. Last year, the festival featured Mumford & Sons and Deadmau 5 among many other acts on the bill.

Tickets for the festival are on sale now via the festival’s website (link above).


Handsome English indie-rock band, The Maccabees, have just announced their 2013 USA, Canada & Mexico tour. The tour kicks off Feb 8th in the Midwest at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis, followed by a show at Lincoln Hall in Chicago .They will then head up to Canada to play two shows in Montreal and Toronto. Back to the states, the band will be making appearances at The Bowery Ballroom in Manhattan and The Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn just in time for Valentine’s Day. They are then scheduled to head south, hitting up major cities on the way to Texas (Yee-Haw) and then finally, Mexico City!
